Just curious as to your morning rituals, shower, shave, etc. I'm looking to hone mine a bit to improve my general appearance. I'm not a slob but I'm not metrosexual either.

What hints do you guys have out there get to ready for the day? Thanks for the help and no detail is too small.

You're posting on a computer nerd forum for fashion/grooming tips?...I don't think so.

You need a visit from some folks qualified to help you:

I shave quickly...


First apply the AFTER shave, then touch face with lit match.

Much faster that way.

- Turn on boob tube for news
- Feed hungry, demanding lab princess, Miss Doggy
- Slosh down 2 lg cups strong coffee/ lo fat b'fast
- shower & shave (splash on Paul Sebastian to smell nice)
- do 575 situps, crunches, leg raises
(helps bad back/ keeps stomach from rolling over pants too much and makes me feel like a quasi Metro Man)
- dress in specially picked, no iron clothes(hate ironing)
(if I can bend after 575 situps, etc.)
- stagger out of house due to too little sleep/ coffee
- drive off into the sunrise for another exciting day at knucklehead job

Dump the Consort and Bryll Cream and get some good quality hair gel. You'll be gelin', man!

Actually, and this is a horrid, terrible thing that I would not wish on my worst enemy...when I was a sophomore in h.s., the dingbat woman who cut my hair put some MOUSSE on it. I have Don-King hair even sans mousse. So try to imagine what my hair looked like post-mousse, on a hot, humid day, after gym class. Some of my friends used to call me "Hair" for a nickname. I looked a lot like the superstud in mick e's sig.

Then I changed hair stylists, tossed out the mousse can and got hep to Stu, Stu Studio Line from LoreƄl...hold yore hare in STY-UL!

I pray, just before I shower. Makes a big difference in how my day goes.

Get newspaper and on way back grab diet pepsi from fridge. Check Drudge and Baseball News. Turn on talk radio for marching instructions for the day.

Old Herb Caen story was about a husband fixing his wife's breakfast. "First I mix her bloody mary and then light her cigarette."

Winston Churchhill used to keep a glass of scotch by his bedside which he immediately drank upon waking up. Definitely did not go to meetings.

My wife wakes me up at 6 am as she gets out of bed.
She wakes me up again around 7 am as she finishes up her shower and bathroom routine.
She leaves around 8:15 am, usually I am awake but if not she attempts to rouse me a 3rd and final time.
I usually do wake up by 9 am in any case.
I shower after I move my bowels. Usually by 10 am. I shave in the shower. I'm working on a streamlining step wherein I move my bowels while shaving in the shower...

I can't either, but it reminded me of another tip for saving time in the morning: wear your work clothes to bed and keep them on when you shower. That way you don't ever have to do laundry! However, it could get a little dicey if you are shaving and doing the bowel thing at the same time.

I work shift work.
Is there coffee? Turn on computer. More coffee. Read e-mail and sync PDA. Lay out uniform on bed (maintence). S#!t Shower and Shave. Travel mug of coffee, maybe a vitamin or two.

Those are the constants.

Sometimes the family is awake and sometimes they are not even there. When I work daylight I come home to dinner at 5:00. When I work 2nd I come home, maybe a beer to take the edge off the caffeine, and crash. When I work graveyard I hear about all I missed, read e-mail and do an errand or two, crash, up again, crash, stagger stagger stumble roll.

If streamlining is the purpose, don't go here or any other forum, in fact don't click on email, in fact don't even fire up the Mac.

You'll be amazed how many extra hours are available every week.
